Authentic Wine Tour
Authentic Slovakian wine tasting at local producer in Little Carpathian wine region combined with a small hike into the vineyards and up to a castle ruin above the town of Svätý Jur. 4-hour tour that takes you away from Bratislava into the real countryside.
Svätý Jur is a picturesque small town settled above the vineyards of Little Carpathian mountains, located only 15 kilometres north from Bratislava city centre. Medieval character of this place together with a mysterious castle ruins of Biely Kameň and wine production make a perfect destination for a short trip from Bratislava.
You can choose from two versions of this experience. Wine tour Basic provides wine tasting at local wine shop, while Wine tour DeLuxe includes private wine tasting in a renaissance wine cellar and in vineyards provided by an enthusiastic young local wine producer.
Easily the most unique tour I have been on ever. You can only see so many churches, castles and palaces. Seeing the recent socialism past was a very different and eye-opening trip through Bratislava. This is what Bratislava is all about. Truly enjoyable and overwhelming.
This was without doubt the best guided experience I have had to date. Juro did an fantastic job – both knowledgeable, enthusiastic and able tailor the experience to us. I give my highest recommendations to Authentic Slovakia.
It was a fascinating trip through this dystopian architects’ playground, and a really interesting look at how a small city like Bratislava has coped with the onslaught of communism and the effects of sudden urbanisation and centralized planning.
